Droplets of Verse: ‘A Strange Kind of Heat’

You may as well have attached electrodes to my genitalia
It surged through me daily, that overwhelming sense of failure
The dull shock of even a minute in your company
Was enough to fill my flat battery with a full charge of insanity
I swam through those deep waters daily, hoping to discover an island
But, it was an endless ocean of raw emotion, I must have been blind
The fish in the sea swam around freely, without any obvious effort
Until one day they got tangled in a net, and then they were caught
It was a mixture that created a strange kind of heat
The vapour was sour, when it should have been sweet
There was a reaction, it was an experiment that went wrong
It bubbled away dangerously for years. Far too long
